ECS Fargate container running ASP.NET image not garbage collecting


I have an ECS Fargate task running an ASP.NET image and I have noticed that it keeps failing due to OOM exception. I can look in CloudWatch and the memory keeps increasing. When I run in a local docker container, I can see that the garbage collector is running correctly and there is no memory problem. I have seen people suggest to set Server GC to false, but I'm not sure if that is the problem. From what I have read this should have been fixed in previous versions (I am using 5). Is this expected and is the correct approach to set this to false?

I will suggest to consider fine tuning web.config

  • That is where I have seen the ability to turn off server garbage collection. Do you know if this is a known issue?

  • no, there is no known issue. However, if there are dangling references, GC has no way to cleanup. I'll suggest to look into code. Profiling may help

  • I mentioned that this is not been in a local docker container. GC works just fine, which is what is leading me to think it's an ECS issue or at least difference
